Stem Ginger & Oat Crisp-Topped Apples with Caramel Sauce #AppleWeek #Sponsored

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #AppleWeek.
I received complimentary product from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #AppleWeek recipes.
All opinions are mine alone.

Well, this year's #AppleWeek may be over, but I still have some recipes to share. When you have an entire parade of amazing sponsors, it definitely takes more than five days of recipes for me to fit them all in. So, you will be getting a few bonus recipes. And, as far as recipes went, two dozen bloggers brought you over ninety recipes to bring apples to your Autumn table. I hope you'll check them out. Also, there is still time to read my introductory post, peruse the prize packages from our event sponsors, and enter the giveaway: here. You won't want to miss out. Really.

I received some gluten-free oat grahams from one of the event sponsors - Nairn's - and loved the stem ginger ones. Well, they were all delicious. But the stem ginger ones needed to be paired with apples in my mind. And the addition of oats makes this dessert feel a little bit more healthy. Sudden inspiration!

Stem Ginger & Oat Crisp-Topped Apples with Caramel Sauce

This crisp was made with delicious apples (thank you, Envy), flavored with vanilla (thank you, Taylor & Colledge), topped with and oat and graham cracker crumble (thank you Flahavan's and Nairn's) and drizzled with caramel sauce (thank you, Torani)! You can add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on side to make it the perfect end to an autumn dinner!

And I loved the kitchen tools from Zyliss that made coring these lovelies a cinch. Gotta love these generous sponsors* who sent the bloggers products to use in their recipe creations.


  • 2 to 3 apples (prefer Envy Apple)
  • 3/4 C rolled oats (prefer Flahavan's)
  • 1/4 C butter, softened + 2 T butter, cold and chopped 
  • 1/2 C flour + 2 T
  • 1/4 C cane sugar (prefer Bob's Red Mill) + 2 T
  • 1/4 C crushed graham crackers (prefer Nairn's)
  • 1 T diced candied ginger
  • 1 t pure vanilla paste (prefer Taylor & Colledge)
  • 2 t ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/2 t ground ginger
  • caramel sauce for serving (prefer Torani)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Use an apple corer to remove the core from each apple. Slice apples and place them in a bowl along with 2 T flour, 2 T sugar, and 1 t ground cinnamon. Toss to coat completely and turn the apples into a buttered baking dish. Dot the top with 2 T chopped, cold butter.

Place the softened butter, flour, sugar, graham crackers, cinnamon, vanilla, and ginger in a small bowl. Rub the butter into the mixture to create a crumble topping. Stir in the candied ginger pieces.

Spoon the mixture evenly over the apples.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until apples are tender and the crumble topping crisped and brown. Let cool for at least 10  minutes before serving.

Drizzle with caramel sauce and serve immediately with the vanilla ice cream, if desired.

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found." Read her invitation here. And there won't be a Twitter chat for this event, so you will have to dive into the articles themselves to read about our pairings and findings. Here's the line-up...
